RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Anyone have any idea of where I can download a USB driver for the Mobility? Google or ZTE site not much help lots of drivers but none for Mobility I was going to download a cell phone USB driver but don't know. I would like to connect to USB port the computer sees it but says no driver for ZTE Mobility.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Well the Mobility is NOT sold as a standalone someone came up with a simple way to use it without being in the vehicle. You can also tether the Mobility to a router for more than five users at one time and a better wireless range. The HUM "may" have a way of doing the same thing I don't know I do not have a Verizon account and figured it might be of interest to someone other than you that has a Verizon account so they can check it out. ATT could just as easy update your Mobility to shut of at 10 minuets no exceptions if they so desire after all it was an update that let you have it on for 24 hours a day.

RE: How to Tighten RV Awning Springs over the slideout

Don't remember what kind I had but when the spring broke I looked up the web site and they had a manual you could download with instructions. Easy job just be careful what kind of tool you use you do not want the spring to suddenly unroll while tightening you might eat the tool.

RE: $200.00 thrown away.

When you just don't have the skills to do a job you are at the mercy of the tech and just have to hope for the best. From most of the post I have read on here the mobile tech were competent and saved the day in that case you are happy to pay. On the other hand when you have the skill and no longer can fix things due to age (me)you can oversee the work even though the mechanic really does not want you to. It doesn't take long to figure out if the tech doesn't know the job and you intervene by telling him how to do it or fire him.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Verizon has come out with "HUM" a device similar to Mobility but a LOT smarter it is also 22GB but you must have a Verizon plan to add it. The way I read it this is not a stand alone plan. Also reads several pins of the OBDII port so it may sense data to determine if in a vehicle and "may" not be used outside vehicle. Manual says turns off 10 min after key off.

RE: AT&T Connected Car

Question was asked on Howards forum and the answer is "not available for international markets" as stated in the ATT contract. One individual tried it (I think he was on a cruse ship)and it would not work. There is an option to select international data that you can check in the Mobility but apparently you will not have international data even if checked. I did not click on the option during set up since I wouldn't need it. Others have asked about Mexico but I did not see a post on anyone trying it.

RE: quadrajet replacement

IMO the Q-jet is a PINA to rebuild compared to just about any other carb. I replaced one a Blazer that I used to race offroad with the Holly easy to rebuild or setup.

RE: Serious Flaw in Firefox and Chrome Browsers!

Lower left using FF 53 shows apple site but when I click on the link Bitdefender calls it a phishing site and blocks it. I guess FF 53 is not yet up to speed thanks for the info and fix.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

You can put the sim card into another hotspot and most likely nothing will happen but ATT's contract states you can not swap to a phone. Others have tried and received an e-mail while others have gotten away with swapping to a phone and have no feed back... go figure. Once you swap look at your account and you will see instead of Mobility it says "unknown device" so they do know you violated your contract and are subject to cancellation.

RE: 1999 Prevost - What a coach!

Our RV has no slides our friends have slides when camping in winter we heat with 2 portable electric heaters and stay comfortable they have to go buy propane after a week or so of running the furnace + electric heaters. I suspect a 99 Provest is still worth a ton of money if you could find one for sale. I know I would be proud to own one just no in the budget.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Mine works great 30mbs down 32mbs up -73 dbm from home. Cancelled my $60 a month 15mbs cable and I will rarely go over the 22Gb. The WiFi signal is not very powerful so I will have to come up with an attached wireless router the grand kids not as likely to visit if they can't access the internet.

RE: Kiwkee steps just clicking..

I had that problem several years back turned out to be the four wire connector was corroded and would not pass enough current to run the motor. The connector looks like the four way trailer connector take it apart spray contact cleaner on both sides reconnect then do it again. Caution when working on the steps if they suddenly start and you are in the way the steps will win that battle every time. I have also had to replaced the motor but that was a different symptom.

RE: Pathway X2 Owners

Do you have a way to check the voltage at the tailgater low voltage can cause weak signal.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Ordered mine online through ATT yesterday (FRI) shipped and in town today (Sat) arrived to late for delivery today I will pick up Mon. Already have phone number and can activate online I will probably have to call in for FAN discount. Made my own DC supply.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Well the Mobility is no longer available or very limited closes one to me is a Best Buy 150 miles down the road. ATT has non in stock. I plan to buy one but was waiting to see if they would update the firmware to operate under motion or detect something on one of the OBDII pins besides ground and power. Right now you can change the time out so no big deal.

RE: Windy conditions

On the road and winds over 40 I head for a campground. We have been in winds over 60 in campground lots of rocking even with the jacks down. More than once set through tornado warnings can't outrun them so head to bathhouse or just hunker down and pray. Never worried but do know it can get dangerous from really bad storms with creeks flooding, lighting, trees blowing over, high winds.

RE: restoring 1987 holaday Rambler

What I have found most of the parts will match to a P30 VAN. Also the parts guy/gal will try to sell you 1 ton pick-up parts but they do not match up.
